How do you know destiny when it knocks on your door, or recognize it if it’s always been there?
Christian Riley, Elizabeth Horace, and Oscar Albright grew up together, the clichéd “church kids”, but Chris quickly found everything about his life stifling. When he moves to Los Angeles to get away from everything his existence has dictated for him, he doesn’t expect Elizabeth to follow him, but he’s known for as long as he can remember that she loves him obsessively…just as Oscar loves her. With Chris’s faith in tatters, he has no interest in Christianity let alone morality. Yet in the thirteen years that follow, he finds himself returning to Elizabeth whenever he hits rock bottom.
When a serial killer/rapist’s attack of Elizabeth is mercifully thwarted, Chris’s world collapses in on him. The attack has changed Elizabeth. She realizes she’s put her life on hold for too long. Has Chris fallen in love when his angel of... More > mercy is no longer available to him?

4 1/2 Stars! “TOnce again the author, Karen Wiesner, has written an inspirational romance that kept me reading far longer than I should have. (I rescheduled a dentist appointment just so I could finish it.) I would also like to mention that a card game (called Destiny Poker) is played in this story. A small section, in the back of this book, tells how the author came up with the game. The author has even made a special card deck, which you may choose to order. (I have a deck. The back of each card has a picture of the book’s cover. I have to admit that the cards are gorgeous.) The characters have well-developed backgrounds and are so believable that, were they real people, I could have called them my friends. A wonderful story to curl up with on a cold night or take with you on a plane or vacation. Very heartwarming.” ~Huntress Review http://www.huntressreviews.com 4 Stars! “DESTINY by Karen Wiesner is a very good book. As a Christian and a young adult, I could relate to this book on... More > many levels. As humans, when we are on a spiritual level sometimes we find it hard to forgive ourselves when we feel that we have done wrong. I have struggled with that myself. I think Karen Wiesner did a great job of displaying the struggle of a spiritual journey. Karen Wiesner also did a great job showing how sometimes our relationships with others can consume us and how we in return, lose ourselves in wanting to be loved. The four main characters, Chris, Elizabeth, Oscar, and Yolie, who are all friends, all have unique stories but their stories blend with each other. Chris is struggling to find his own identity but is doing so in a way in which he is turning away from God. Elizabeth does not really know who she is but is not really trying to find herself because she is so much in love. Oscar is Elizabeth's best friend and to me is the most sane of the group, and Yolie is someone who just has a really caring heart but that is also what has led to most of her struggles. All in all, DESTINY is a great story. I would recommend it strongly and encourage all to read this as it can actually help a lot. Karen did a good job of putting a lot of twists and turns in the book, which I loved. The book definitely kept my attention all the way through. If you enjoy real romance novels that not only focus on the good but also show the struggles of relationships and how couples do overcome them, then this is the book for you.” ~Readers Favorite http://readersfavorite.com/< Less
